Is There an Age Limit for Working in the Field with MSF?

There is no maximum age limit for our field staff. Difficult working conditions do mean that applicants must be in a good state of health.

Can My Family Accompany Me?

Living conditions in the field (security, housing, etc) make it difficult for field staff to be accompanied by children or partners who are not participating in the project.

May I Request Placement in a Specific Country?

It is not possible to honour specific country requests. MSF recruits applicants into a pool before matching them to a specific position based on their skills, experience and background. MSF expects candidates to be flexible about where they work so that we can meet the needs of the field. However, special skills, languages and restrictions are taken into consideration in each placement.

What if I am Injured or Become Ill

MSF will arrange and cover you for health insurance while on assignment. In the event of medical evacuations, repatriation is also covered.

Do You Recruit Only Doctors?

We recruit doctors and other medical and non-medical staff. Examples include surgeons, anesthesiologists, registered nurses, midwives, mental health professionals, finance and human resources specialists, logisticians, and specialists in construction, electricity, mechanics, or water-and-sanitation.

How Does MSF Ensure Security in the Field?
We take risk management very seriously. We continuously analyze security levels in order to create regulations and rigorous safety precautions to minimize the risks. Field workers and local employees are obliged to follow these rules and procedures during the course of their assignments.
